My First NYFW

My experience being front row as a social media representative


When I heard the producer of NYFW, Fashion Gallery, was looking for student volunteers, I knew I had to be a part of it. I signed up immediately.

My friend and I took the MegaBus from Philly to New York (an affordable way to travel between the two!) and celebrated with a Margherita pizza the night before the show’s call time at 5 am.

On September 8th and 9th, I got the chance to sit front row in 9 different fashion shows, including Project Runway alums such as Christopher Palu, Mychael Knight, and Korto Momolu.

As a social media representative for FGNYFW, I was encouraged to post 5-10 pictures from each show. Each designer had a different set of hashtags and photo tags that we needed to include. I was so happy to have my iPhone 7 plus because it took such high quality, professional looking runway shots!


The first day, there were five shows. I’ll insert some pictures that I took!

The second day consisted of four shows. Here are some of my favorite shots.

Overall, I feel so grateful to have had the chance to work at FGNYFW, and I can’t wait to go back.
